Approximately 50 to 70 million adults in the United States alone suffer from sleep deprivation or a sleeping disorder. Even more concerning is 38 million of these adults rely on a sleeping medication to help them get some sleep. Ambien was created for short-term help with sleepless nights. It was not meant for long-term use.

Ambien was initially marketed as a safer choice than benzodiazepines. It was believed to have less risk for addiction or tolerance. However, studies have shown that this is underestimated. Ambien is addictive.

If you have developed a tolerance to Ambien and find yourself taking larger and larger doses to obtain the same effects and results from the drug, you could have an Ambien addiction. Likewise, if you try to decrease or stop and find yourself having withdrawal symptoms, you could have an Ambien addiction.
